Steering Column selection

Im building a 47 chevy StyleMaster. Looking for info on the best column for this car. from what i have found, I should find 70's - 80's gm column. My question is will a van column fit as well or will it be too long? Im looking for tilt, no shift column. (putting in a floor shift)

Van column should work as well as anything..always take a tape measure with you to the pick-a-part place..

streeing col.

I used a cutlass from the 80's in my 40 chevy sedan, I'd think a van would be to short. The big GM have a longer shaft than the cutluss 2's and nova's lol
